The Schlage RC reader controller provides real-time connectivity with local mode feature and can be managed in the same system as Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks.

Schlage RC reader controllers provide both a modern look and an advanced feature set. Designed with technology to support Bluetooth®, NFC (Near Field Communication), smart credentials (13.56 MHz) and standard proximity credentials (125 kHz); end users can define their migration path to secure credentials.

The Schlage RC reader controller is designed to work in open physical access control software (PACS) systems. Please visit our Alliances page for a list of PACS providers that have completed integration.
